Notes

ANMODE involves an ANSYS macro which produces an animation of mode shape of the last plot action command (for example, PLDISP). The ANMODE command operates only on graphic display platforms supporting the /SEG command. After executing ANMODE, you can replay the animated sequence by issuing the ANIM command.

This command functions only in the postprocessor.
